A fun summer color combination for Global Design Project

I have not participated in an online challenge in a very long time! So, when I saw this weeks Global Design Project color challenge I knew it was time to participate!  The colors for the challenge are Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, and Mellon Mambo.  This fun summer color combination will make you wish for bright flowers, limeade, and a pool!!

A fun summer color combination

Does this fun color combination not scream Summer!! I know you are nodding yes!!! Yes it does!!   Be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Design Team!!!  They sure are full of talent!!!

I was super excited to see a new frame stamp set in the upcoming Annual Catalog! Swirly Frames Stamp Set (146519) has circles, rectangles, and a square.  I love the whimsical feel!

Swirly Frames was paired it with the Varied Vases (146644) and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper! (45589)

Tuesday I shared a super sweet card that featured the Varied Vases Stamp Set! If you happen to miss it! Here you go!

Love this fun summer color combination for #GDP137. Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist

  • I have really enjoyed the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  One of my favorite things is to color the paper with Stampin’ Blends.
  • I used my pool party light and dark.  Then because I did not have Lemon Lime Twist in a Stampin’ Blend, I used Chartreuse and Lime Peal in Prismacolor.

Love this fun summer color combination for #GDP137. Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist

  • The circle frame was Stamped in Melon Mambo.  Then die cut with one of the Layering Circles. And backed with a Pool Party Scalloped Circle from the same Layering Dies
  • The flower was stamped in Basic Black.  The stamped with the fill in stamp in Melon Mambo after stamping off once
  • The final step was to add the sweet sentiment!  I just think this font is the most adorable ever…

I love decorating envelopes!  For this one I added the sweet flower in stair step fashion on one side!

Varied Vases and Swirly Frame come together for #GDP137
